Comical, moving, meditative, liberating! This kick-ass novel offers a piercing look at two parallel journeys: a man and a woman each searching for the cause of a brother and a sister‰ۡó»s downfall.

After a disturbing call from a certain Josias Brandt, Karl Hofmeyr reluctantly sets off to assist his brother, Iggy, who seems to have gone off his head. But Karl ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ heavy-metal fan de luxe ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ is delayed by his many crippling obsessions. ̴Ì_

Maria Volschenk is unexpectedly overcome by a vast sense of emptiness. In an attempt to avert this threatening void she travels to the Western Cape to confront her sister‰ۡó»s suicide and her problem son. The two storylines converge at an unlikely city farm in Cape Town, where the brother, Ignatius Hofmeyr, is involved in a bitter conflict with the sinister Brandt fellow. ̴Ì_

Die aanspraak van lewende wesens̴Ì_won the WA Hofmeyr Prize, Hertzog Prize for prose, NB-Uitgewers Groot Romankompetisie, M-Net Prize and the University of Johannesburg Prize.
